May 2023 – mid month update

I’m off to Boston tomorrow but wanted to get a quick update as to what I’ve been able to accomplish so far this month. The rest of the month will be a lot of traveling, work and just making sure my family is taken care of that I don’t know how much more crafty things will get done.

#1 – Lucretia’s Journey – My goal is to quilt and finish finish finish this flimsy.

This was quilted last month and I’m super embarrassed to say that all I was able to do was get this bound. I still need to do a label and take a pic and do my final ‘it’s done’ post! I hope I get my act together and do it soon so I can get this off my to do list. And start quilting on my next project.

#2 Plum Fusion – Finish the top!

Not yet done

#3 – The Quilty Pleasure Saturday Sampler – the April block – done

#4 – Tuella and Friends – My goal for this month is to do block one. – The machine applique is done but there is some hand embroidery I need to add to embellish this.

#5 – Mountain Mist – no update

#6 – Ornaments – I finished the embroidery on all my ornaments last month and I think I forgot to update my post. I need to attach them to the final backing and then do some blanket stitching all around before this can me done.

#7 – Sashiko… I am keeping this on the list but this will have to wait until my ornaments are finished. There is just not enough time in the day.

#8 – Raining Cats and Dogs- this is an old hand quilting project that I set aside. I am adding this on this list to remember it and figure out how to get this done. Ideally It’s one of those projects I spend a little time on each day but I have a lot of those now and so need to think about my game plan.

Happy quilting!
